Adelaide Lolita Easter Meet – So much Chocolate!

Adelaide Lolita Easter Meet – So much Chocolate!

Easter meet 2015 3

I Know I am a tad bit late, but oh well. Better late than never right? I hope you all had a lovely Easter break ๐Ÿ™‚

The Easter long weekend for the Adelaide lolita community means a few things, there will be chocolate, it’s going to be a big meet, there will be pastels everywhere, and most importantly, there will be bunny ears!

I was so excited for this meet, but I almost didn’t make it as I had been quite ill for the whole week before. By the time it came around, I was determined to go as I was sick of being couped up in the house, and I desperately wanted to twin my chess chocolate print with my friend Corina.

I know I have worn my chess chocolate print a thousand times before, but man I love that dress. It was finally cool enough for me to wear the matching long sleeved blouse, and to even pair it with my chocolate print cardigan! It was my first time wearing the bonnet as well, and I am so pleased with how the coordinate came out.

Being Easter Saturday, our original venue san churos was closed ๐Ÿ™ Luckily there was another chocolate shop open on Rundle street (I forget the name), that had enough space for us all. They even had gluten free chocolate cake! I was in heaven. Angela and Kiri had organised little bags with chocolate eggs in them for all of us, and we also got a riddle to solve. The answer to each riddle was a place you could hide an Easter egg, I didn’t do so well at figuring it out though.

Here is me with my lovely twin for the day Cornia! She thought it was hilarious how short I was standing next to her, so she made me stand up on the curb for our photo. She was still taller than me!

Corina and I weren’t the only ones to twin that day though. Angela and Kiri were perfectly matching (as always) in there royal melty chocolate JSK’s, with their adorable matching handmade bunny ears. Then there was Dalestair and Sophie twinning in their chocolate quartet dresses.

Once we had our big group photo, we went for a wander through the mall and made our way to Miss Pixie’s closing down sale. Which is where I got my adorable bunny ears! I didn’t stay out much longer as I was still feeling a little under the weather, but I am glad I went. It was such a lovely event ๐Ÿ™‚

Easter Saturday Impromptu Family Lunch

Easter Saturday Impromptu Family Lunch

This Easter had been a bit of a non event really, with the house moving and what have you. So since mum and dad were out of town (Lucky things ditched us for the weekend to go to the Byron Bay Blue Festival!) and Mr Tardo was away for one of his Net Runner competitions, My brother Andy, his girlfriend Amanda, myself and my Papa (grandfather) all decided to go out for lunch down at Grange beach. It really was such a glorious day after all. One of those daysย where the sun is almost too warm but the breeze is cool enough to stop you from over heating. Just beautiful. We went to this lovely seafood restaurant, and after our meal we all decided to go for a walk down the pier to at least attempt to rid ourselves of a few of the calories we had just devoured. We had Papa’s wheel chair with us, but as usual he was being to stubborn to actually use it for to long, so my brother and I spent most of our walk taking turns to sit in it and run each other into things (because what else are siblings supposed to do in these situations?) whilst Papa and Amanda walked arm in arm laughing at us. We stopped at the end for a bit of a rest, and we took a few photos. Amanda took this lovely photo of Andy, Myself and Papa all sitting together, its made even better by the fact that Andy is actually smiling nicely. He is notorious for ruining photos by pulling faces. He does it ALL. THE. TIME.

My Papa decided that maybe wacking him on the head with his walking stick wou;d make him behave. He was wrong... :P

Finally, I got these wonderful shots of Andy and Amanda. Aren’t they just the cutest? I think he has found himself a keeper here. She gets our family, and I’m excited to be sharing the house with the two of them ๐Ÿ™‚
